Wind River Launches Wind River Studio Linux Services to Address the Challenges of Linux-Based Intelligent Systems

March 16, 2022 — From Alameda, California — Wind River, a global software leader for critical intelligent systems, addresses the challenges of using community-based, open-source software, such as security, faults, compliance, and ongoing management of critical intelligent systems. service, Wind River Studio Linux Services (*1).

Amit Ronen, Senior Vice President of Customer Success at Wind River, said, “The requirements for critical embedded systems are very stringent and have been in operation for many years, so the team in charge must build the system and then maintain it for many years. Security and compliance are important. In the future of critical intelligence systems, it is a huge challenge. Wind River Studio Linux Services is a service that responds to changing market needs, such as development , deployment and maintenance of embedded systems. Studio Linux Services is robust. Helps build and deploy reliable and secure Linux-based smart devices and systems, reducing the burden of monitoring and maintaining your platform, which maximizes profitability for developers.You can focus on developing innovative and differentiated intelligent edge systems that become increasingly popular. “

As market needs grow, there is an even greater need to rapidly develop innovative, stable, and easy-to-deploy embedded Linux solutions. At the same time, system complexity poses new challenges for security, compliance, fault recovery, and ongoing maintenance of these new platforms. Finding flaws (especially security flaws), fixing them and applying patches can cost more than 100 times more than in the development stage. This is a heavy burden for development teams trying to innovate while meeting tight deadlines.

Additionally, the resources, expertise, and time-consuming costs of upstreaming these fixes and collaborating with the open source community can be overwhelming for many organizations. However, if these efforts are neglected, technical problems will accumulate and existing products will eventually become obsolete and new versions will not be developed. Therefore, Wind River will provide a new managed service to address these challenges by building on its track record of helping customers build, deploy and secure their Linux systems for nearly 20 years.
